This DFSMS Implementation course provides the skills required to plan and implement Data Facility Storage Management Subsystem (DFSMS). A step-by-step implementation strategy, emphasizing coexistence considerations, is reinforced by hands-on labs. In the hands-on labs, students will be creating constructs as well as coding ACS routines. This milestone approach includes managing temporary and permanent data sets. The course also discusses exploitation of functions provided by DFSMS as the installation evolves to the DFSMS environment.
Establish a DFSMS configuration to automatically enforce your installation's storage management policies
Convert service level requirements into appropriate parameters for data class, storage class, management class, and storage groups
Create and test automatic class selection (ACS) routines
Convert volumes and move data to system-managed volumes with data facility data set services (DFSMSdss)
Specify appropriate management class and storage group parameters for
DFSMShsm processing of system-managed data sets
Establish procedures to control, manage, and recover the storage management subsystem with ISMF and operator commands
Develop a DFSMS implementation plan
This is an intermediate course is for personnel responsible for developing and implementing effective storage management techniques using DFSMS.
You should take the following courses or equivalent knowledge may be substituted for these courses.
